The catering job I just experienced this past Saturday, Dec 28, 2013, with Taqueria Cazadores was excellent and I'd like to max out the stars for them. Although they are area-renowned for their Mexican offerings, I learned they also cater good 'ol BBQ which I chose for my 60 guests for my son's Boy Scout Eagle Court of Honor. Nearly all guests went out of their way to tell me how excellent the food was. Way to go, Evan!!! For readers: Evan was there plenty early; had all the food ready on time; no problems with portions; and even went out of his way for having vegan-type food for a few of my guests. Thank you, Larry

Sat did a wonderful catering job for our luncheon of fifty people this past weekend. I was a little hesitant at first because I didn't know his work and he didn't have his website up and running. I'm glad I took a chance as he came through with shining colors.

A Plus Catering came to my rescue when I found myself in a pinch and short staffed. The job I required was a little different as I needed them to staff carnival booths. While it was an unusual request they took the job. Jennine and her team were delightful, professional, timely, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. I would use them again and I do recommend their services.

Debbie and her Made with Love crew catered a last minute large event of 200 people for my office and I couldn't be happier. Debbie took care of all my needs and went out of her way to make sure everything we wanted we got. She was so friendly as was her staff and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend Made with Love Catering and know you won't be disappointed. Theresa N.

I can't say enough about Andrea's catering service. Food was not only DELICIOUS it was unique. A feast of spicy flavors. Each dish was well prepared--cooked to perfection. Andrea was very easy to communicate with. Very patient even through my busy event preparation stage. She arrived on time on each of our meetings, returned every phone call or email. Most importantly, she easily set up all our food for our garden party in very timely fashion. I'll definitely use Andrea again and highly recommend her for all catering events!!

Deb makes the most amazing quiche and is such a pleasure to work with. I worked with her when she prepared quiches for our Christmas party at our home. She takes such pride in her quiches and her full service catering and has developed this into an outstanding business. I would recommend her to cater your next event and assure anyone that she delivers the best quiches and excellent services along with her great smiles and laughs.

My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole

Best experience ever! I hosted my daughter's first birthday party and hired Kitchenina for the catering. The owners, Kostas and Aliki are professionals, very polite and will go out of their way to service you. They came on time for the party. The food was warm and delicious. I was raised in Greece and their Giant Mediterranean spicy beans are the best I have ever tasted:) The lamb roast, the tacos, the rice bowls and all the dishes we ordered are extremely tasty. I love they offer a variety of quality food from different cuisines and that it tastes home made. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again.

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

Hi There! I book catering for our offices weekly; often multiple times per week, this was simply one that I had no direct control over-a special "kid gloves" request from my new manager (yikes!) An offsite, early Monday morning, breakfast meeting in San Francisco, on the 21st floor, at a company with whom I'm not familiar AND none of my direct connections would be in attendance.(Whaaaat???) I went to work and used Thumbtack for the very first time. I received several bids in the first hour, the one that Matt was super responsive to my initial inquiry and was helpful all week long. By Friday I was set! Because I am who I am, I reached out on Sunday night and Matt with Kitchen 350 responded to both email and text promptly; put my worries to rest (well for a few hours anyway). I reached out in the morning things were going to plan and from what I gather, kudos were flying around the building! Matt's team provided all we needed and tossed in some coffee to boot! I was elated to report this to my manager! Kitchen 350 made our team look good, I will definitely use them again!

We had Annicette grill for our July 4th party however she also helped us out by serving as well! She was able to bring a gas tank for our BBQ which we really appreciated and she had brought her own as well. Our BBQ grill didn't have enough space for everything so she took the initiative to use our grill inside the house and switched between the two when needed. When we discussed the arrangement, I could have used a bit more feedback from her on Thumbtack however she responded much better on text/SMS , we paid a hourly rate however Thumbtack seemed to have an issue which only allowed us to book for one hour although we actually used her for four hours.

Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!

Nikolitsa's food is SO delicious! I have yet to try anything Nikolitsa has made that I haven't loved. She cooks up some of the best vegan food I have ever tasted and I have been vegetarian or vegan for over 20 years. Nikolitsa is professional and personable and keeps her menu constantly changing with amazing new recipes. This is the kind of food that could turn meat eaters into vegans; everyone I recommend Nikolitsa's food to loves it.
